Spotswood Eliminated From GMC Golf Tournament By Colonia


KENILWORTH, NJ - The Spotswood High School golf team lost stellar golfer, Evan Esposito to graduation last June. However, the team has bounced back from the big loss to put together a winning season, compiling an 11-6 overall record. The Chargers moved from the Greater Middlesex Conference White Division to the Blue Division this season. It's a change that has had a positive effect on the young team, making them more competitive.

The Chargers defeated both Piscataway High School and John F. Kennedy Memorial High School to advance to the first round of the Greater Middlesex Conference Golf Tournament on Tuesday, May 16. Their wins put the twelfth seeded Chargers up against fifth seeded Colonia High School.

It was a beautiful afternoon for golf, however, the Patriots came away with the win to advance to the next round, defeating Spotswood, 155-171.
